    I worked at Valley Health System (New Jersey) full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Knowledgeable doctors who care about their patients.

    Cons

    High turnover rate. Below market value salary. Retaliation from management.

    Advice to Management

    Hire quality, competent people and not just bodies to accommodate or fill shifts. Be consistent with progressive discipline for problematic and toxic employees (especially the old timer ones who have been working there for a while) and ensure that your infrastructure is current and up-to-date. Micro management kills the entire workplace environment and morale. Reevaluate or oust bad apple supervisors and managers.
